Ryan Forbes (13 days ago)
9 30 9 45 dispatches. for me I run out of Houston. drive 40 mins just to get to my work area do 70 to 90 stops lots of over size I would say 70% of my deliveries need a dolly. Wal-Mart alone is a job I have to pallet their stuff usual 2 full pallets worth. a few industrial places like oil rig companies they almost always have heavy stuff like wire spools etc. 800 week no benefits about 11 hours a day

Seems like you are very smart with talent and awesome people skills. You need to get online and make your own money for yourself and not the next man
Da Thriftologist (19 days ago)
FedEx Ground sucks. They don't tell you when they hire you that you are not even a FedEx employee .People will tell you it's awesome because you can own your own route, but you will never get a good route over the OG drivers and contractors already there before you.

Just happened to come across your videos tonight and have been watching for hours. Great stuff, man! - A Connecticut Ground Driver
MJ (24 days ago)
Summer time PCM is at 09:15, then go to my truck look to see what express/commited time packages i have, do my pretrip, then out the building around 09:30. During peak especially Mondays we start earelier.
Dylan McMillan (26 days ago)
Yo! Nice video. I just started as ground driver a month ago. Since you asked what time we dispatch...we’ve had dispatch as late as 9:30 and as early as 7:30.
Erasmo Nunez (27 days ago)
Damn 73 stops??? Where is this at? I work for FedEx ground and my stops are 175 with 280 packages???
Kenneth Nestor (27 days ago)

P Hightower (30 days ago)
I drive for the express air division here in Texas! All i can say is....after watching a couple of UPS clips, we should ALL be glad we work for Fedex
CThompsonTv (30 days ago)
Lol ups drivers love their jobs. Well, the ones I know
Bradley Pridgeon (1 month ago)
Dispatch in fargo nd is about 8am to 830 on average.
Kyle Shackelford (1 month ago)
As a package handler, I had realized that one of my drivers would be angry and re-organize the WHOLE truck when he got there, so instead of wasting both of our time, I started loading to his spec. Now, I can just look at the address and know exactly where the package goes on the truck. If I ever get a package that needs taped, I don't even load it until I get it some help. Some of us do our job well lol......
Wings of Redemption (3 days ago)
Kyle Shackelford I'm jealous I gotta load semis I want to do the van lines bad cuz it's easier but they won't give me it...
Horribad Gamer (17 days ago)
I think handlers should be paid more. You guys really bust ass too!
Lacy Harris (1 month ago)
How you become a driver at fed ex bro?
Thomas Wiese (1 month ago)
We used to dispatch by 7am... but that was when we loaded our own trucks. Since going to pre-load (dumbass package handlers) it’s anywhere from 7:30-8:15am, depending on incoming volume
Diaz (1 month ago)
I dispatch 7:40-8:00 on a normal day. Btw sorry for all the notifications, just been binge watching a lot of your vids lol. Haven't seen a channel like this before

Kay Jay (2 months ago)
I quit because my manager yelled at me for helping my fellow drivers load their trucks, and then the owner told me to do what the manager said even if he was wrong. The only problem with me helping people load trucks in the morning is because the manager didn't want me to. That was the only reason I was given. He had no other reason for yelling at me. I would even help him and others deliver at the end of my shift. He literally told me the only reason why he didn't want me to help load trucks was because he didn't want me to. That was it. He said there was no issue with me helping others load their trucks it just wasn't what he wanted me to do. I was more upset that the owner took the managers side. His reason was that he hired him as the manager and he put his trust in him, and he told me I was in the wrong for questioning the managers decision. He blamed me for the whole situation and wanted me to admit it was my fault. I told them I was not in the wrong, and I wasn't going to admit fault and didn't want to work for them anymore. So i quit. The other drivers talked me into coming back to work because they couldn't handle the load I left them with, and wanted my help. Because the other drivers needed me, and asked me to come back and help them I did. I called the manager and said if you need the help I will promise not to help others unless asked to do so. The manager said something along the lines of good you see it my way or something like it, which really bothered me, but I went to work again anyways. The owner was mad at me and didn't pay me for some of the work I did, and I was just over it. I couldn't work and not get paid so I left again. I haven't worked for Fedex since.
Kay Jay (2 months ago)
Work for Fedex Home Delivery. Way better in every way. Every way. I would never work for Ground ever again.

How does fedex handle your driving record for new hires ?
Xavier Sims (3 months ago)
CThompsonTv I only have 2 tickets would that disqualify me ?
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
How's your driving record?
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Same as any driving job
holladay trucking (3 months ago)
As a Fedex contractor the top 5 reasons I see people leave. In order are . 1 long hours 2 no benefits 3 money 4 pressure 5 weather. If you got anger issues or become overwhelmed easily ? This is not for you. Can’t deal with angry people in a calming professional way ? Not for you. Can’t handle that Your service must meet or exceed Ups for half the money. Not for you.
cameron marshall (3 months ago)
How hard was it to get the drivers position? Did you have to start at the hub? I would like to double my income I hear people bringing in 50k+ I currently work my but off managing a company that could care less for much less.
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Do you have experience driving a delivery truck? Most truck are automatic
cameron marshall (3 months ago)
Yea I have a clean record at 23, been driving for over 7 years but never a manual. That would honesty take me a week of practice to master I'm a gear head an have installed a clutch before for a friend but never actually drove one come to think of it lol. I'd rent a truck an practice
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Not all that hard. Do you have driving experience?

Is home delivery better than ground .i work ground and thinking in going into home delivery with another contractor .
CThompsonTv (4 months ago)
It really just depends on the route. Home delivery just doesn't have scheduled pick ups like grounds
Kyle Blount (4 months ago)
When I drove for Ground we dispatched at around 8. I drove a p1200 with 70-90 stops and 300ish packages a day, so I understand the frustrations bro.
CThompsonTv (4 months ago)
It's very annoying. Then when we complain, people think we are crazy lol

CThompsonTv (5 months ago)
We've been getting out 9:15 -9:30 now
MsTiff Madsen (5 months ago)
Wait, why don't they have the package handlers strap the packages in? That looks very unsafe. Driving truck, we had to strap our cargo down. Load straps.
CThompsonTv (5 months ago)
For the most part they'll stay
eric jones (5 months ago)
I work Fed ex ground in okc we dispatch at 9:30-10a our dispatch time is ridiculous
Jason Fink (5 months ago)
Is dispatch the same as the time we launch from the station?
Jason Fink (5 months ago)
If dispatch is launch time, then we usually are out of station between 7:50am or so or later depending on trucks/flights. Late freight sucks. I am a late start so I start at 7:30am
Y4shiRoku (5 months ago)
12:30 and you got almost half of the truck gone, you the mvp. lol
Taylar James (5 months ago)
Amen brother. I was a Home Delivery guy for about 6 years 3 Years in  Chicago 3 years Seattle and Im still emotionally and mentally recovering. The most stops I had during Christmas was almost 300 stops  we had to load our own trucks, and it was downtown Chicago. Ive never been so stressed in my life. My average stops were from 120 to 150. Definitely under paid and under appreciated.
algierssolja (3 months ago)
Sleep? Who the hell needs sleep. We have work that needs to move. You can sleep when you die....or retire. LOL sleep! That is a good one.
Taylar James (3 months ago)
Because a lot of the deliveries were down town Chicago, so I had a lot of high rise apartments and businesses up to about 60 floors or so and sometimes you could get rid up 20 packages at a time. That would take some of the edge off, but sometimes Id be working from 6am to 9 at night, but yah almost sleeping at the hub.
klazzikk (5 months ago)
Taylar James how is that even possible? did you sleep at the hub?
Mr Harvey Guy (5 months ago)
8:30 is right around the normal range anytime past 9:00 is a little later than normal for packages to be made available. If your van is messy everyday, look in to your vision map. Also follow up with the VL manager. If that doesn’t do it, get with the Sort Manager and or P&D manager
shortymackinem (5 months ago)
On a average we get dispatched at 8:00 on the dot but sometimes sooner.

Same here. Most of the time
Andy 15 (6 months ago)
I was offered only 600 a week, I was like hell no. I live in California, and the route they were trying to give me was in a horrible area . That's one of the reasons why I didn't I take the job.
algierssolja (11 days ago)
+Alfred Hernandez as part time early Am driver at top pay? I routinely made nearly as much as ground drivers. Tuesday through Friday and Saturday air; Saturday is the only day I might have worked a little over, but I was home by noon ez! You have to know the game. I can deliver 1 ground pkg a day and over time kicks in at 4 1/2. Why do you think they are changing air progression this contract? It's the easiest money in the operation.
Alfred Hernandez (11 days ago)
algierssolja no one is making $1000 a week working 4-5 hours everyday, I work at UPS, you got jokes man. 🤣

Ups drivers never quit . Low key you can’t beat ups . They take care of there employees and they make good dam money
Da Thriftologist (19 days ago)
Ironically enough my best friend drives for UPS and just called me yesterday asking about FedEx Express. He's not even 6 months into full-time driving and he is losing his damn mind
Da Thriftologist (19 days ago)
Take care of their employees?! 😂🤣😂🤣 Bwhahahahahaha
Alex (20 days ago)
algierssolja yea they do but it is also a union, so the people who have been there longer will get the driver position. I would have been there working for crumbs forever if i was wishing and waiting on a driver position. I also heard they have no lives either being a driver is hard to balance family time and work.
algierssolja (20 days ago)
Alex they pay 37hr for drivers. Man up for that money if you bout it bout it.
Alex (23 days ago)
Fuck u.p.s they dont pay shit i was unloading the 18 wheeler trucks for them making like 150 a week not including the gas i had to use driving across san antonio every night. Busting my ass and back for crumbs. Fukn slave factory.
Drew Duffy (6 months ago)
Usually around 7:45
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
Dang! So early!
Lorenzo Nevarez (6 months ago)
We would dispatch around 7:30-8:30 when our station was in Las cruces, NM. They moved our station to santa teresa, nm in July and now we get dispatched anywhere from 8:00-9:30 but 8 is rare. My route starts close to three hours from the new station.
PatFightsFat (6 months ago)
QA should have taken care of that tape job for you
Nakita Lin (6 months ago)
We dispatch about 745-830. Most days it’s closer to 830 unfortunately. Then about 30 minutes to get to my route which makes for a late start. 150lbs weight limit sucks. I would love for the FedEx big shots to run a route

No doubt man. I never dropped the F bomb so much in my life when as I was a FedEd driver. Swearing almost became my main mode of communication lol...I took that job and shoved it!
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
😂 you aren't lying dude
Diaz (6 months ago)
I worked for 2 contractors. I quit the first one because the pay sucked and if FedEx charged them for a damaged package or a late pickup they would take it out of our checks. Let me get this straight, I deliver about 1000 packages a week and if 1 gets damaged or is reported as such, I lose half of my check. NOPE! I quit the second contractor because he was cheap. He paid well, but the trucks were garbage. My foot went through the floor, literally in the cargo area. Another time my truck broke down and it took 4 hours to get me a replacement. I worked until it got dark then DNA everything. The straw that broke the camel's back was he switched my work area from a city to a rural area. I gave him 2 weeks notice and called an end to my time as FedEx. I'm thinking about going to FedEx Freight through their driver apprentice program to get my CDL, but I'm undecided. Right now I'm working in a Walmart distribution center making 20 an hour with all types of benefits. I just don't like the warehouse environment or working with other people.
Taylar James (5 months ago)
I feel you man. I got fired because I had an unaccounted package on two different  occasions over the course of three years. Thats two packages out of the thousands I delivered over three years. smh
Ian K (6 months ago)
Freight has an apprenticeship program? I heard they’re paying 12-15 a week
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
Dang dude, that's crazy. Don't blame ya for quitting though
Big Boss (6 months ago)
Wow dude! This job gets frustrating. That crap happened to me as well while I was in Home Delivery. Truck broke down and waited for a replacement truck which I had to reload by myself. I. Was curse all the way to my first stop. I feel your pain....lol
Matthew Allred (6 months ago)
Usually dispatch is about 8 but than printers go down and paper runs out and you have 30 other drivers waiting for paperwork so....... it’s longer Here people usually quit because they get trained for a week than get thrown onto a heavy full route or they find out that other contractors pay a piece rate
Matthew Allred (6 months ago)
That’s probably what would happen if the station wasn’t slow about certifying drivers
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
Yeah, that sounds about right. Spot on with the first part
BlownViper 505 (6 months ago)
Spot on, I quit bc I felt the money was not worth me going out there in below freezing weather while it's raining at the same time... NOPE. Doesn't even cover doctor bills lol
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
Haha! I can't argue with ya there. Luckily it doesn't stay cold here long

BigBaycon (6 months ago)
Dispatched at 9:30 today. Everyone was ticked. I don't understand how we can get out at 8 during peak and it takes til 9:30 on February 7. WTF! Debating taking a job at Pepsi. Tired of Grounds crap
Peter Mason (3 months ago)
My dad works for pepsi, The way they run it at his place is horrible. A couple of days ago he was there for 13 hours because they weren't ready for him to do his run for 5 hours. He got there at 4 am and couldn't make his run till 9 am.
Eduardo Rodriguez (4 months ago)
Come to FedEx freight
charlesh805 (5 months ago)
BigBaycon I worked for Pepsi for 13 years and to come to FedEx Ground, big difference on how they run their company. Way More efficient to say the least.
kajun k1ng (5 months ago)
Your getting out early typically we get out past 9:30. Im a manager so usually if i have to run a route im not out till 11pm
BigBaycon (6 months ago)
I always hear people say they dont care about ground and never used to believe it, but the longer I work here Im starting to realize thats probably true
JJ JJ (6 months ago)
We didnt leave until 11am today. Its usually 845 everyday.
JJ JJ (6 months ago)
I work for Express so sometimes the flights are late, but yesterday the semi got stuck behind a fatal accident on the interstate. So that made it even later.
Nakita Lin (6 months ago)
Wow!!! That’s late!! The latest we can leave is 9:45 (it’s in the contract)
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
